Shampoo and Conditioner Recipe NEW
by: Kyley

My personal preference is for white vinegar because I find that the sharp scent of other kinds of vinegar really lingers in your hair. The scent of white vinegar seems to dissipate better.

That said, apple cider vinegar is better for your hair. So it's up to you! You can't wreck a recipe by using the "wrong" vinegar :)

What kind of vinegar? Apple cider or white? NEW

Great ideas - didn't know what kind of vinegar to use - apple cider, white? Thanks

Simple Shampoo Recipe
by: Kyley

The simplest thing to do is buy an unscented shampoo or conditioner and add essential oils geared to your hair type. Here's a page with tips for choosing the best essential oils for your hair:

A very basic shampoo recipe is liquid castile soap and essential oils. You can water it down a little if it's too thick. That said, the basic shampoo recipe posted on the page below is pretty simple, and it's effective and very gentle on hair.

Conditioner is a bit more tricky. Here are a couple of very simple recipes you'd use BEFORE washing your hair.

1 tablespoon each olive oil and honey, 1/2 teaspooon lemon juice. (If your hair is very long, double the recipe.) Stir everything together until completely mixed. Apply to your hair and leave in for 20 minutes. Wash out.

For a killer conditioning treatment recommended by my very expensive hairdresser back in the days when I was rich, use full fat real mayonnaise. He said the combination of egg, vinegar and oil was perfect for rejuvenating hair. Just slather it on, leave it for up to an hour and then wash it out. You'll need to wash your hair a couple of times to get it all out.

If you're looking for an easy conditioner/detangler to use after shampooing, just add a tablespoon of vinegar and up to 10 drops of your chosen essential oils to a cup of water and use to rinse your hair. Dead easy and very good for your hair and scalp.

To make a more conventional conditioner, you have to do a bit more work. The simplest recipe I know is posted here...

I hope that answers your question. If not, post a reply and I'll try to help you out. Thanks for getting in touch!
